Frumkin has talent to burn…” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

RAISING THE DAD by Tom Matthews
From acclaimed screenwriter and novelist Tom Matthews comes a high-concept and surprisingly funny novel about a man who must cope with his troubled family after learning a devastating secret. “Delivered with humility and humor, a seemingly unbelievable scenario becomes very real and brings a family at the brink of falling apart back together.” — Booklist
